SLC. A more wretched hive of scummy air and villainous road construction you wont see.

Put on some Andy Hunter and go as fast as you can to get through this place.

Who’s idea was it to put one interstate highway through 100 miles of city and then line it with orange cones?

So yesterday our fire went from 1500 acres in the morning to 10000 acres in the evening.  They started evacuating DeBeque and closed the interstate.

I wonder what it’s going to do today…

Added: It’s over 12,000 acres now.

The coolest thing you’ll see all day

“We never got tired of the lightning bolts zapping our simulated (targets),” said George Fischer, lead scientist on the project.

And that is all I’m going to give you. If it isn’t enough to pique your interest, you haven’t been reading enough science fiction.

Not a single liberal in a hybrid to be found…

Seen on the road

I saw my very first Romney bumper sticker.

It was on a shiny Buick that had Utah plates.

Speak of the devil!


That, my friends, is what is known as a “Forest Fire.”

Added: It’s the Pine Ridge fire. About 10 miles north of my house. Don’t worry, it would have to come down the bookcliffs, cross 4 miles of barren ‘dobe, and then the interstate, and then the canal.
